I would like to disable my Onedrive.  I already pay for extra storage to iCloud and I find trying to deal with 2 different backup systems frustrating. I don't see a picture here or there, I end up with the photo on my PC in several places..very annoying and hard drive wasteful...

 

I have a VAIO laptop Windows 8.1 upgraded to Windows 10. It is about 3 yrs old.  I have a ton of hard drive but I am only interested in using one back up system.

 

I am going to remove Onedrive from my iPhone and maybe that will take care of the problem. I am not sure.  I have watched all of the Youtube videos that I can about disabling Onedrive and I do not have any of the clickable icons they talk about. 

When I right click on the Onedrive icon, they say click on settings, I have no such option.   I walked through my computer with the YOUTUBE  video playing and I followed along and when I got to users, I clicked that, I clicked on appdata I had that and then we parted ways, I no longer had any of the icons to click on that he was clicking on. 

 

Can anyone help? I thought maybe since I bought this and the operating system was 8.1 but was told I could soon upgrade to 10, they would be sending it and they did. So I have an 8.1 operating system that had been upgrades to Windows 10. And of course I think right now it is 10.1.  I was thinking that made the settings different?  Let me thank you ahead of time, for YOUR time, I know it's precious.

If you choose not to use One Drive, everything is fine. In other words, just don't use it.

One Drive is very integrated into Windows. I use it and Google Drive. I use Google do share files with other and use One Drive to share with my devices. So the best thing to do is not use it.

I understand.

Open the following web page https://support.office.com/en-US/article/Turn-off-or-uninstall-OneDrive-f32a17ce-3336-40fe-9c38-6efb09f944b0 and make the necessary changes.

It is easy do not panic.
